Description

  The present invention relates to a wireless communication system, and more particularly, to a wireless communication system using multiple transmission / reception points that can be applied to a wireless communication system having a plurality of transmission / reception points geographically separated from each other in a cell.

The wireless communication system has an extremely high data transmission rate together with the wired communication system. This tendency to keep pace is fourth generation mobile communication system 3GPP (3 rd Generation Project Partnership) LTE (Long Term Evolution) -Advanced system, cooperative multi-point (CoMP: Coordinated MultiPoint, hereinafter referred to 'CoMP' ) We are promoting standardization of transmission and reception methods.

  The CoMP transmission / reception method indicates a transmission / reception operation between two or more points (site, cell, base station, distributed antenna, etc.) and one or more terminals. The CoMP transmission / reception method includes uplink CoMP transmission and downlink CoMP. It can be divided into transmission.

  Uplink CoMP transmission is a transmission method in which a predetermined terminal transmits a signal at a plurality of points geographically separated from each other, and the signals received from the terminal are jointly processed at the plurality of points. With uplink CoMP transmission, the terminal does not need to know what network node has transmitted the signal or what processing has been performed on the received signal, and what downlink signaling is associated with the uplink transmission. You only need to know if it is provided. Therefore, uplink CoMP transmission can be introduced without significant changes to the radio interface standard.

  Downlink CoMP transmission is a method in which a plurality of points geographically distant from each other transmits a signal to one or more terminals in cooperation with each other. In 3GPP TR 36.814, a downlink CoMP category is jointly processed ( JP (Joint Processing) and Cooperative Beamforming / Cooperative Scheduling (CB / CS: Coordinated Beam forming / Coordinated Scheduling), and Joint Processing (JP) is further divided into multiple points (PinsCH) by PDSCH. ) Joint transmission (JT: Joint Transmission) when transmission is performed simultaneously. Dynamic point selection a case in which the PDSCH transmission in (one point): are classified into (DPS Dynamic Point Selection).

  Joint transmission (JT) is a distributed antenna concept in which data can be used at each transmission point in a CoMP cooperating set (CoMP cooperating set). It is characterized by very fluid performance due to errors and the like.

  The dynamic point selection (DPS) method is a method of performing PDSCH transmission at one point in the CoMP cooperating set at a specific moment, and the transmission point can be changed dynamically, and performance is degraded due to feedback delay. can do.

  The cooperative beamforming / cooperative scheduling (CB / CS) method is a method of transmitting data to a terminal only at a serving point at a specific moment, and is a passive method for avoiding interference between transmission points. Therefore, when a large capacity increase cannot be expected, and user scheduling / beamforming needs to exchange information between different base stations, cooperation between points corresponding to CoMP cooperating set requires backhaul. Can be used.

  On the other hand, in the 3GPP LTE standard Release-8, Release-9, and LTE-Advanced standard Release-10, it is common that all transmission points have different physical layer cell IDs (Physical Cell Identity). Accordingly, if a transmission method using multiple points as described above is applied to the standard, transmission using multiple points is performed in an environment where each transmission point has its own cell coverage.

When the CSI reference signal (Channel State Information Reference Signal) and the terminal-specific reference signal (UE-specific Reference Signal) are used, the terminal-specific reference signal generated using the PDSCH and the virtual cell ID is transmitted to the terminal. can do.

  Here, the first transmission / reception point and the at least one second transmission / reception point may simultaneously transmit the PDSCH to the terminal when the terminal uses a cell-specific reference signal (Cell-specific Reference Signal).

  Here, the first transmission / reception point and the at least one second transmission / reception point are determined using the virtual cell ID for radio resource mapping of a signal transmitted to the terminal through an antenna port 5. Wireless resources can be used.

Here, each transmission / reception point uses a physical layer cell ID as in the method defined in the LTE-Advanced standard for generating a sequence of a location reference signal and mapping radio resources of the location reference signal.

In a downlink communication method using multiple transmission / reception points according to an embodiment of the present invention, a plurality of transmission / reception points are connected to the same cell for a terminal supporting LTE-Advanced Release-11 or a later standard. A virtual cell ID is introduced in the network arrangement environment to which it belongs.

  In the LTE-Advanced Release-10 standard, a reference signal sequence used for a UE-specific reference signal (UE-specific Reference Signal) is a pseudo-random sequence, and an initialization value used for generating a pseudo-random sequence is: It is defined as different depending on the physical layer cell ID. Therefore, cells having different physical layer cell IDs use different pseudo-random sequences as reference signal sequences. The reason why different cells use different physical layer cell IDs and generate different pseudo-random sequences in this way is to mitigate inter-cell interference (Inter-Cell Interference). In particular, in the case of reference signals corresponding to antenna ports 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, and 14, all cells use the same radio resource, so interference due to reference signals transmitted from neighboring cells. In order to relax the signal, it is necessary to use different reference signal sequences between adjacent cells.

  On the other hand, as shown in FIG. 1, when a plurality of transmission / reception points transmit different data using the same resource in a transmission environment using multiple transmission / reception points, signals transmitted by adjacent transmission / reception points are transmitted. In order to mitigate interference, it is necessary to use different reference signal sequences between transmission and reception points.

  As described above, in order to use reference signals with different transmission / reception points, different initialization values should be used when each transmission / reception point generates a pseudo-random sequence used for generating a terminal-specific reference signal sequence. Is preferred.

  FIG. 3 is a flowchart illustrating an example of using a virtual cell ID in downlink transmission using multiple transmission / reception points according to an embodiment of the present invention.

  Referring to FIG. 3, first, the base station 110 notifies the virtual cell ID for each of the terminals 171 and 173 (step S310).

  Thereafter, the base station 110 applies the virtual cell ID instead of the physical layer cell ID, generates a pseudo random sequence to generate a reference signal sequence (step S320), and uses the generated reference signal sequence to each terminal. After generating the unique reference signals 171 and 173 (step S330), the generated unique reference signals of the terminals 171 and 173 are transmitted to the terminals (step S340). Here, the virtual cell ID may be assigned a different value for each terminal.

  Each terminal 171 and 173 generates a reference signal sequence using the virtual cell ID allocated from the base station 110 (step S350), and detects a terminal-specific reference signal using the generated reference signal sequence (step S350). S360).

  In the case of PDSCH transmission, the base station may generate a pseudo-random sequence by applying a virtual cell ID instead of a physical layer cell ID to generate a scrambling sequence used for bit unit scrambling of each codeword. it can. In this case, the terminal generates a scrambling sequence using the virtual cell ID assigned from the base station, and then performs PDSCH detection using the generated scrambling sequence.

  Hereinafter, a method of using a virtual cell ID in a downlink communication method using multiple transmission / reception points according to an embodiment of the present invention will be described in more detail.

Physical Downlink Shared Channel or PDSCH
In the case of a terminal that supports the LTE or LTE-Advanced Release-8 / 9/10 standard, the scrambling sequence used for the bit unit scrambling of each codeword is a pseudo-random sequence using the physical layer cell ID. Generate a scrambling sequence.

  In the case of a terminal that supports LTE-Advanced Release-11 and subsequent standards, a scrambling sequence is generated using a virtual cell ID instead of a physical layer cell ID for a terminal to which a virtual cell ID is assigned. To do.

  Alternatively, when a terminal supporting LTE-Advanced Release-11 and subsequent standards cannot be assigned a virtual cell ID, a scrambling sequence can be generated using the physical layer cell ID. For example, in the process of performing random access to connect the terminal to the network, since the terminal is not yet assigned a virtual cell ID, the base station applies the physical layer cell ID to the response and message transmission for the random access of the terminal. Then, the scrambling sequence is generated, and then the bit word scrambling of the codeword encoded using the generated scrambling sequence is performed.

  The downlink communication method using multiple transmission / reception points according to an embodiment of the present invention provides two methods for transmitting PDSCH.

  The first method is a method in which a wide-area transmission / reception point transmits PDSCH. The terminal uses a cell-specific reference signal (CRS) according to a transmission mode (transmission mode) or receives a UE-specific reference signal (UE-specific Reference Signal) from a wide-area transmission / reception point. The received PDSCH can be demodulated.

  Meanwhile, at least one narrowband transmission / reception point uses a CSI reference signal (CSI-RS) to acquire channel estimation and CQI (Channel Quality Indicator) information, and performs data demodulation using a terminal-specific reference signal. When the transmission mode to be performed is set, the PDSCH and the terminal-specific reference signal can be transmitted to the terminal.

  Alternatively, when at least one narrowband transmission / reception point is set to a transmission mode in which a terminal obtains channel estimation and CQI information using a cell-specific reference signal (CRS) and performs data demodulation, PDSCH is not transmitted. This is because in the first method, at least one narrow-band transmission / reception point does not transmit a cell-specific reference signal (CRS) to the terminal.

  In the second method, when a terminal acquires a channel estimation and CQI information using a CSI reference signal and is set to a transmission mode in which data demodulation is performed using a terminal-specific reference signal, each terminal belonging to the same cell is used. In this method, the transmission / reception point transmits the PDSCH and the terminal-specific reference signal to the terminal.

  Alternatively, when channel estimation and CQI information is acquired using a cell-specific reference signal and the transmission mode is set to perform data demodulation, all the transmission / reception points belonging to the same cell simultaneously transmit the same PDSCH to the terminal. To do.

Terminal Specific Reference Signal Each transmission / reception point belonging to the same cell can transmit a terminal specific reference signal together with PDSCH.

  Here, each transmission / reception point generates and transmits a terminal-specific reference signal sequence using a virtual cell ID instead of a physical layer cell ID to a terminal to which a virtual cell ID is assigned, and receives the received terminal. Detects a terminal-specific reference signal using a reference signal sequence generated using the assigned virtual cell ID.

  Each transmission / reception point generates and transmits a terminal-specific reference signal sequence using a virtual cell ID instead of a physical layer cell ID to a terminal to which a virtual cell ID is assigned. The reference signal sequence is generated using the virtual cell ID, and the terminal-specific reference signal is detected.

  In addition, each transmission / reception point uses a virtual resource mapping of a signal (for example, a terminal-specific reference signal) transmitted through an antenna port (Antenna Port) 5 for a terminal to which a virtual cell ID is assigned instead of a physical layer cell ID. The radio resource determined using the cell ID is used.

  Alternatively, each transmission / reception point generates and transmits a terminal-specific reference signal sequence using a physical layer cell ID to a terminal to which a virtual cell ID is not assigned, and the terminal that has received this transmits the physical layer cell ID. A terminal-specific reference signal is detected using a reference signal sequence generated by using the reference signal sequence.

  In addition, each transmission / reception point uses a radio resource determined using the physical layer cell ID for radio resource mapping for a signal transmitted through the antenna port 5 to a terminal to which a virtual cell ID is not assigned.

Introducing RRH-PDCCH and RRH-PHICH In the downlink communication method using multiple transmission / reception points according to an embodiment of the present invention, each transmission / reception point belonging to the same cell is defined as PDCCH and PHICH defined in LTE or LTE-Advanced standard. Introduce new physical channels that can perform each of the functions.

  In one embodiment of the present invention, a new physical channel capable of performing the PDCCH function is referred to as RRH-PDCCH, and a new physical channel capable of performing the PHICH function is referred to as RRH-PHICH.

  Each transmission / reception point belonging to the same cell transmits the RRH-PDCCH and RRH-PHICH and the terminal-specific reference signal together so that the terminal can demodulate the RRH-PDCCH and RRH-PHICH. Here, the RRH-PDCCH and the RRH-PHICH can be transmitted using a part of radio resources that can be used by the wide-area transmission / reception point for PDSCH transmission.

  Each transmission / reception point can use the virtual cell ID for mapping of RRH-PDCCH and RRH-PHICH to radio resources and generating a scrambling sequence for bit-based scrambling.

Introducing RRH-PRS In the downlink communication method using multiple transmission / reception points according to an embodiment of the present invention, a new reference signal is introduced in order to improve the accuracy of the location of the terminal. In the present invention, the above-described new reference signal is referred to as RRH-PRS.

  A plurality of transmission / reception points belonging to the same cell can transmit RRH-PRS to confirm the location of the terminal. Here, each transmission / reception point can use a virtual cell ID for RRH-PRS sequence generation and RRH-PRS radio resource mapping.

Here, the CSI reference signal measurement information may include setting information corresponding to all or a part of the CSI reference signal transmitted at each transmission / reception point, and the setting according to a predefined mapping rule. It is set so that terminal 170 can grasp the radio resource pattern information of the time-frequency space of the CSI reference signal from the information.

  The terminal 170 that has received the information for measuring the CSI reference signal transmitted from the base station 110 measures the CSI reference signal included in the CSI reference signal measurement information (step S420), and the measurement result is transmitted to the base station. 110 (step S430).

  The base station 110 determines a CSI reference signal pattern or CSI reference signal pattern that the terminal 170 must measure based on the measurement result received from the terminal 170 (step S440), and determines the determined CSI reference signal pattern or CSI reference signal. The pattern is transmitted to the terminal 170 (step S450).

The terminal 170 acquires CSI for link adaptation using the CSI reference signal pattern or the CSI reference signal pattern received from the base station 110 (step S460), and reports the acquired CSI to the base station 110. (Step S470).
The base station 110 performs link adaptation based on the CSI received from the terminal 170 (step S480).

Cooperative transmission of multiple transmission / reception points In a downlink communication method using multiple transmission / reception points according to an embodiment of the present invention , cooperative multiple transmission / reception point transmission in which a base station transmits data or control information to a terminal using multiple transmission / reception points. It can be performed.

  Hereinafter, a set of a plurality of transmission / reception points that perform cooperative transmission to a terminal in a downlink communication method using multiple transmission / reception points according to an embodiment of the present invention is referred to as a “cooperation point set”.

  First, the base station 110 receives channel state information from each terminal 170 (step S510).

  Thereafter, the base station 110 determines a cooperation point set for performing cooperative multiplex transmission / reception point transmission to the terminal 170 based on the received channel state information (step S520). That is, the cooperation point set can be set differently for each terminal 170 depending on the channel environment of each terminal 170.

  A plurality of transmission / reception points 151 and 153 included in a cooperation point set that performs cooperative multiple transmission / reception point transmission to the terminal 170 generate a transmission signal for transmitting the same data to the terminal 170 using the same radio resource. After (step S530), the generated transmission signal and the terminal-specific reference signal for demodulating terminal 170 are transmitted to terminal 170 together (step S540).

  Here, a plurality of transmission / reception points that perform cooperative multiplex transmission / reception point transmission must simultaneously transmit the terminal-specific reference signal, and must use the same reference signal sequence. For this purpose, a plurality of transmission / reception points that perform cooperative multiplex transmission / reception point transmission transmit the PDSCH generated using the virtual cell ID notified to the terminal by the base station and the terminal-specific reference signal sequence.

  Hereinafter, an uplink communication method using multiple transmission / reception points according to an embodiment of the present invention when all transmission / reception points belong to the same cell and the same cell ID is assigned will be described.

  In an uplink communication method using multiple transmission / reception points according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention, a UE can transmit a PUSCH (Physical Uplink Channel), a PUCCH (Physical Uplink Channel), and a PRACH (Physical Random Channels) through the uplink. Demodulation Reference Signal (SRS) and SRS (Sounding Reference Signal) can be transmitted.
